reminder: ferguson and palestine are still happening and are still important even though there’s less attention being paid to them right now
Look, I don’t really understand otherkin either, but people need to stop harassing these guys. I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen a community so flooded with trolls trying to mock them, hurt them, and make them look bad. They aren’t hurting anyone, they aren’t claiming to be oppressed, (that’s trolls) just let them do their thing ok?
There are two little boys outside my apartment building playing Captain America and Winter Soldier, and — I’m not even IN MCU fandom, but this seems very accurate — they are just taking turns carrying each other to an imaginary safe-zone, bridal style.
i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened.
Honestly.. When PoC get to an age where they are able to deeply realize and internalize how intensely and directly racism affects them, as well as able to recognize the little racial microaggressions against them, it truly IS a traumatic experience. Its draining and depressing and painful and scarring. It can very easily make you lose the will to do anything or dream anything. And that is something that whites will never experience, thus never understand how deep this goes.
